TRU Housing Just Minutes from Thompson Rivers University

Just a 30-minute walk, a few minutes by car, or a short one-bus trip, getting to and from TRU is easy. With a bus stop right outside your door (at Summit and Springhill), you’ll be on campus or enjoying the many shopping, dining and recreational opportunities in minimal time.

Great TRU Student Shopping

As a busy student, you’ll need your TRU housing to be located near grocery stores and shopping centres. Affordable, convenient food is a must, from quick snacks to healthy meals and groceries. With four shopping centres in your neighbourhood, you’ll find everything you need for eating out or stocking up the fridge.

Within blocks of Summit Village Residences, you’ll find the following:

  • Summit Plaza
  • Columbia Square
  • Summit Shopping Centre

These malls are located nearby and have much more to offer than fast food. Up the street at Summit Plaza, you’ll find organic groceries and healthy lunches at Nature’s Fare, or tasty sushi at OYA. Affordable bulk food is available next door to Summit Plaza at Bulk Barn in Columbia Square Mall.


Obviously there’s more to being a Thompson Rivers University student than studying. Your new suite at Summit Village is situated just minutes from local entertainment. Take in a movie at Cineplex Odeon, which is just a short bus ride away, or visit Fox ‘n Hounds pub (a 15-minute walk) for award winning pub food and a great selection of beverages.

If you like watching great hockey, the Kamloops Blazers Junior A team brings excitement to the ice every home game at Sandman Centre, located downtown, just a few minutes’ drive from Summit Village.


Most housing options near Thompson Rivers University don’t offer fitness facilities. At Summit Village Residences, you won’t have to leave the building. Visit our well-appointed fitness room for weights, stretching or cardio work. You’ll be more motivated to work out with ease of access and convenience. Why waste time travelling to and from a gym when you can get fit at home and not pay extra for it?

In-Suite Laundry

TRU housing with in-suite laundry? You bet! Most students have the hassle of toting their laundry bag to and from coin laundries, or waiting for their turn to use shared laundry facilities. Each of our suites offers the convenience of your own in-suite washer and dryer.

Kamloops Student Housing with Style

You deserve a TRU housing experience that supports your busy life as a student. Why rent an old, broken down apartment, basement suite, or cramped student quarters, when you can live the student life with more space and style? Our new Kamloops studio suites offer modern design, appliances and fixtures, and convenience at great prices.
